Germany vs Slovakia UPDATES:

FULL TIME: Germany win 3-0 vs Slovakia with much ease. Boateng, Gomez and Draxler the goal scorers for the World Cup winners. Manuel Neuer is yet to concede this tournament.

92′ Kucka is booked.

91′ CLOSE!! Kroos is denied by the keeper! Almost a fourth for Germany. The Germany midfielder has a go from almost three yards out but his shot is straight at the keeper.

90′ Two minutes added on.

87′ Three minutes and stoppage time to play, can Thomas Mueller finally get a goal at the Championships?

84′ Final change of the game: Saláta (in) – Gyömber (out) (Slovakia).

80′ Podolski controls an Ozil pass on his chest and has a shot but the linesman pulls play back for offside.

76′ Germany are one away from biggest win.

75′ Final change for Germany then. Khedira goes off for Schweinsteiger.

70′ Double change for Germany:

Boateng and Draxler go off, on come Hoewedes and Podolski

67′ From the resulting free kick, Durica sends the left footed strike wide of the mark. Hit with power but missing the direction it desired to beat a world class keeper like Neuer.

66′ Hummels is booked. Goes sliding in to win the ball but he takes the man in the process too. The referee not one to prefer good old defensive tackles

63′ GOAL!! Draxler volleys home from close range to make it 3-0! Kroos whips in a corner and Draxler has plenty of time, almost criminal for Slovakian defence to allow that much space, to take it first time. 

59′ Slovakia enjoying more of the possession in the second half so far. But unfortunately for them, they are not making any in-roads into the Germany goal.

53′ Germany get the thumbs up from a legend

49′ Slovakia have started off rather briskly in the second half. Hamsik tees off Kucka but his shot while hit with some power is too central to bother Manuel Neuer.

46′ Kimmich (Germany) is shown a yellow card.

Change at the break: Greguš (in) – Weiss (out) (Slovakia).

46′ We are back! Slovakia are with the ball from left to right

HALF TIME!! Germany 2-0 at the break with goals from Jerome Boateng and Mario Gomez. And Germany have been comfortable in the first 45 minutes even with a penalty miss from Mesut Ozil.

43′ GOAL!! Gomez makes it 2-0 to Germany with a Draxler assist! Draxler runs down the left and cuts back for Gomez to slot in!

41′ CLOSE! Kucka finally gets Slovakia close to a goal. His header is tipped over the bar by Neuer. First real chance for the Slovaks and it is tucked in!

39′ Draxler is off the target this time. His left footed shot from inside the box goes wide of Matus Kozacik’s goal.

37′ Ozil penalty miss is the first for Germany since Polodski’s miss at the 2010 World Cup. Not that it matters. Yet. Slovakia are yet to make any real damage on Manuel Neuer’s goal. Plain sailing so far. But a cushion doesn’t hurt anyone. Republic of Ireland would agree!

32′ Mueller, goalless in the tournament so far, is having more and more of an influence into the things but he continues to be denied. This time, he’s off the target.

28′ Mueller misses the target. Germany are growing into the game.

26′ Khedira has a shot blocked.

14′ MISS! Ozil has missed the penalty as he fires it to the goalkeeper’s right and it is saved

14′ PENALTY! Germany get a penalty in the 14th minute

8′ GOAL! Boateng has given Germany the lead. 1-0. Corner by Kroos that is no clearly. Boateng on the edge of the box sends it in. Deflection though

Kick-off!
